Here is what recent visitors Peter and Jackie from Ontario, Canada had to say about Casa Joya:

'Our very favorite place to stay, Casa Joya has so many wonderful attributes. Among them are its stunning views of the city and the surrounding Sierra, its perfect location so close to the center of San Miguel, and the marvel of the Casa itself, beautifully designed and the terrace is so beautifully lit at night it makes one wonder if its all real. It is so light and airy that the interior and courtyards seem to be one. We spent four weeks their in 2010 and we highly recommend it.'

Guestbook comments from the manager
(From Our Casa Joya Guestbook) Wow, what a trip! What a town! What an experience! We came to San Miguel to celebrate the marriage of 2 friends and this amazing house was only one of the many perks of this destination. This house being designed by the firm House + House is what caught my eye when looking for a place to stay. It was everything I expected and my group loved it just as much. Breakfast in the downstairs courtyard and cocktails on the roof - awesome. I would like to fold this house up, put it in my pocket, and take it home. :) And going to a Mexican Jewish wedding on a beautiful ranch that lasted 12 hours was an experience itself! This little town has been so welcoming and I hope to return many times!

My husband and I have traveled the globe for fun and work our entire 20+ years together. We have homes in San Francisco where we are originally from and now New York where we chose to move because business allowed. When we first saw San Miguel de Allende, it was introduced to us by the architects who remodeled our home in San Francisco in 1999. They own and build many homes in San Miguel and were raving about this absolutely magical 450-year old colonial town in Mexico. We fell under it's spell the first time we visited with our children, bought a piece of land in the historic center, and with these same architects built a dream vacation home for ourselves. We love all things cultural, hence our delight in living outside of NYC, and historical, but wanted a more relaxed environment to get away to. San Miguel fits all of these characteristics like a charm!

Annie Reutinger purchased this house in 2007

Centro Historic is the epicenter of San Miguel's vibrant life. This area is not only beautiful and historic, but where you will find most of the town's restaurants, cultural events (music, film and lectures), galleries, shopping and it's numerous and not to be missed regional and religious festivals. As San Miguel is truly a walking town, living in and around Centro Historico gives you easy access to all the best of what SMA has to offer and

Casa Joya is perfectly located to reach any the town's best attractions easily by foot.

We built Casa Joya to be a home away from home, making sure it was comfortable and functional as well as a delight to the eye.

Casa Joya is:

- a beautiful art-filled contemporary Mexican modern home, complete with all the amenities one would want for an extended stay

- in the heart of the Historic Center but in very quiet neighborhood

- perfectly located to reach any the town's best attractions by foot. San Miguel is a walking town

- only two short blocks from the famed covered market and artisan shopping district

- just blocks from main square or 'Jardin'

- easy walking distance to numerous restaurants, shopping, antiquing and the epicenter of all regional and artistic festivals

- Vonage phone service -- free calls to and from anywhere in the U.S.

Perfect San Miguel Get away!

  • 5 of 5
Spent a week in this artistically tasteful modern mexican home. It was a fantastic home, very comfortable and well equipped with everything that one could want. The location was wonderful, we could walk to anything in town. The rooms were light and airy and we enjoy the vistas from the rooftop, beautiful sunsets and twinkling lights and stars at night. It was located at the end of a small alley so there was no noise from the street. We look forward to returning!

A great place to stay!

We loved our stay at Casa Joya. This home is both beautiful and comfortable and the roof deck has a gorgeous view. Great location too. A short, easy walk to the Jardin, food shopping, the artisan market and so many of the things we love to do and see in town. We look forward to coming back!

Architecturally stunning!

  • 5 of 5
Hola Iona: Casa Joya is truly a beautiful, peaceful home, and yet so close to everything you want to get to on foot. This place is not only in the Centro, but the Centro Historica (even better) so it's walking distance to the covered food market, artists market and the main plaza, El Jardin. What I liked best was the use of space, the angles, colors, shapes of this dramatic place: lots of eye candy, but also very comfortable and relaxing after a long day shopping and visiting wonderful San Miguel. And while cozy and compact, there's enough quiet corners so that each of us could hang out indoors or out on the porches and patios to get some quiet time to read or nap as well (I particularly loved cocktails on the top level crows nest with the sweeping views!) Thanks so much for allowing us to share your home. We'll be back, hopefully soon.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5
When we read the description of Casa Joya it seemed to good to be true. But when we got here it turned out to be even better than expected. Sweeping views, centrally located, beautiful regional art, and an amazing architectural design. We felt right at home and very comfortable in this light-filled, airy, amazing retreat in San Miguel (which is also a beautiful, wonderful town). Casa Joya fits right in. The appliances, beds and bedding and other amenities were the quality, as the owners stated, that they'd expect from their own home and it shows. We ate out sometimes but it was easy and fun to cook from time to time, and we definitely had evening cocktails on the 2nd floor outdoor patio with views of all of the churches and cathedrals. It was a short walk to the center of town, and food and art shopping is just a few blocks away. The local service providers including the property manager and the maid (who comes in 3 days/week) were all kind and generous. We will definitely come back.

Great House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Even though we have been back from our vacation for a couple of weeks now, I still smile when I tell people about our vacation in San Miguel de Allende. The house is nicely appointed and comfortable for our family of four. We love to walk to the market, the bakeries, and to El Jardin every morning. The owner is helpful and the staff is great. We especially enjoy our tour to Guanajuato with Miguel (set up by the property manager). Miguel speaks perfect English and is very knowledgeable. The eating is so good. Some of our favorite places to frequent are Cafe Rama, Cumpanio, La Colmina, Petit Four, and San Augustin. Of course the street food is really good too. Just loved it.

Casa Joya must be one of the most finely appointed homes in San Miguel. Not overcrowded but everything you would need. From kitchen ware, coffee maker, iPod deck, hair dryer etc. You will want for nothing. your housekeeper, is sweet and helpful. The Management group will make sure everything is squared away for you. We needed a dentist our first day here and they got us an appointment within 24 hours. Casa Joya is bright and airy feeling. The rooftop patio has some of the finest views you will see in San Miguel. The Jardin is a flat 10 minute walk.
We very much enjoyed our stay.
